__X __ The requested records have not yet been located and additional time is needed to complete the search.

__X__ The requested records require examination and evaluation to determine if the documents are exempt from disclosure and/or must be redacted.

__X__ The requested records cannot be provided within the prescribed time frame without causing an undue burden or interfering with the operation of the Department.

_____ Consultation is needed with another public body in order to respond to the request.

Note - Extending the deadline to the above-referenced date does not necessarily mean a response and/or public records will be provided to you by that date. FOIA requests are reviewed in the order in which they are received.
